The pressing question of "What would happened if Apollo Creed had a son?" is finally answered.

Instead of making Rocky VII: Rocky vs. ISIS, Sylvester Stallone has decided to put his famous boxing franchise in new hands with the upcoming Rocky spinoff, Creed. Creed tells the story of Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky's deceased opponent-turned-friend, Apollo Creed. Michael B. Jordan stars in the titular role. The film will be directed by Ryan Coogler, who previously collaborated with Jordan on Fruitvale Station. Judging by some of the soundbites from the trailer, it looks like standard inspirational sports movie fare:

I've been fighting my whole life. It's not a choice for me.
